wait a second, what exactly are you trying to do
run a non-vanos motor with a vanos ECU?
why wouldn't that run? M50 vanos motors run when the vanos is broken, so the sensors would just throw codes (CEL) but i dont see why it wouldn't run.
I run a canadian led kit & hid kit company, if you have any questions about led headlights or hid kits in canada or would like to check out our products please contact me here: http://absolutehid.ca
